Rhodes’ first four albums were not conceived and recorded as album releases, but were a gathering together of songs recorded at Cathedral Sound Studios from 1984 to 1986. When fellow musician Kevin Bartlett offered to release Rhodes’ songs on his cassette-only personal label Aural Gratification, Rhodes culled through the songs she had recorded and ordered them to her satisfaction.
Originally released as a cassette tape, each copy sold was a 1 to 1 real-time dub. Ecto was released on CD in 1992 with additional tracks. The bonus track When The Rain Came Down was uploaded to the file sharing network Napster by an unknown person, and misidentified as a duet between Kate Bush and Annie Lennox, two singers who (as of July 2007) have never worked together.
